The Supreme Court will examine this issue raised in a Special Leave Petition filed against a Madhya Pradesh High Court judgment.There appears to be contrary views of the Madhya Pradesh High Court and the Chhattisgarh High Court on the issue as to whose liability would it be to pay gratuity in case of Government aided schools under the Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972, the bench comprising Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul, Dinesh Maheshwari and Hrishikesh Roy noted while issuing notice.The Madhya Pradesh High Court, in the impugned judgment, held that it is the institution, who has to pay the gratuity and not the State.  To hold thus, the High Court relied on an earlier judgment of Division Bench in Suresh Kumar Dwivedi and others Vs. State of M.P.  1993 MPLJ 663, in which it was observed thus: “The teachers of the aided institutions are not appointed under the State Government. There is no relationship of master and servant between the State Government and the teachers. There is no provision in the Act or the rules applicable to such teachers or employees for payment of the aforesaid benefits. It is not clear how the State Government is accountable for extending such benefits and facilities. Since it is a policy matter involving financial burden, it is not the function of this Court to compel the Government to accord sanction, as the Court does not substitute its judgment for that of the legislature or its agents as to matters within the province of either.”In a Judgment delivered last year, the Chhattisgarh High Court, in Ambika Mission Boys Middle School vs. State of Chhattisgarh, held that the State would be employer within the definition of Payment of Gratuity Act, 1972 for the teachers/employees of aided educational institutions. Case: Shri Gujrati Samaj vs. State of Madhya Pradesh [SLP (C) No(s). 15331/2020]Click here to Read/Download OrderRead OrderNext Storylast_img read more

Umphrey’s McGee Welcomes Dweezil Zappa For Debut Frank Zappa Cover At Red Rocks

first_imgFollowing the guitar fireworks that closed set one, Umphrey’s had no choice but to turn it up even more, and that’s what they did. Perhaps their best and truest progressive rock song, “Bridgeless” opened the second set in a huge way, as the song’s first section ended and bled into another progressive masterpiece in “2×2”. After this dream pairing of songs, the band started the funky “Bright Lights, Big City”. The song was was a great change of pace and gave fans a chance to dance after raging so hard to begin the set.Another multi-sectional classic was next, as the familiar percussive intro of “Der Bluten Kat” launched the band into outer space. The song was split into two parts, with an impressive cover of Bruce Springsteen‘s “I’m On Fire” in the middle of the song. After finishing the final section of “DBK”, the band gave fans another chance to dance with the synth-laden “Day Nurse”, which led right into the final section of “Bridgeless” to close out the second set.After a short break, Umphrey’s McGee returned to the stage for a great disco-funk version of “Booth Love,” which took a left turn and transformed into “Miss Tinkles Overture” for a raging conclusion to an excellent night one at Red Rocks. Umphrey’s McGee return to Red Rocks tonight to conclude their run at the famous venue, this time with Joe Russo’s Almost Dead filling the opening slot.Check out the full setlist from Umphrey’s at Red Rocks, as well as photos from Phierce Photo, below.Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee at Red Rocks, Morrison, CO – 7/2/16Set One: Glory > In The Kitchen, Roctopus, Speak Up > Water > Utopian Fir[1] > Muffin Man [2] Set Two: Bridgeless -> 2×2, Bright Lights, Big City, Der Bluten Kat > I’m On Fire > Der Bluten Kat, Day Nurse, BridgelessEncore: Booth Love > Miss Tinkle’s Overture[1] With Dweezil Zappa[2] debut, Frank Zappa cover; with Dweezil Zappa Umphrey’s McGee returned to Red Rocks Amphitheatre last night, for what’s becoming a yearly July 4th weekend tradition. Expanding to two nights this year, the progressive jam masters hit the stage in Morrison, CO last night for a show filled with old favorites, new songs, rare covers, and an awesome guest appearance by opening act Dweezil Zappa.Set one opened with a classic pairing of “Glory” into “In The Kitchen.” These two songs have been hallmarks of Umphrey’s catalog for years, and it’s great to see them trot out two of their best live tunes to open such a huge weekend at Red Rocks. Next up was “Roctopus”, which only just debuted at UMBowl this year in Las Vegas during its Raw Stewage segment. After that was “Speak Up”, a relatively new song that only debuted this past New Year’s Eve.Glory/In The KitchenFollowing “Speak Up”, the band transitioned from new to old with a performance of the beloved ballad “Water,” played for only the second time this year. The song led directly into “Utopian Fir,” which is where things really got interesting, as Dweezil Zappa came out and ripped it up with Umphrey’s on the jam launchpad. Umphrey’s McGee, and specifically guitarist Jake Cinninger, are hugely influenced by Frank Zappa, so a guest spot by his virtuoso son is a dream come true. The band and their guest worked their way through the jam, and landed on a wild set-closing debut cover of Dweezil’s Dad’s classic “Muffin Man.”last_img read more
